Adam Rains

Adam Rains has a true passion for food, wine, spirits and cocktails. A graduate of SDSU, he earned a B.A. in International Business with minors in Latin American Studies and Spanish. After living abroad in South America, he landed jobs with both Mario Batali and Gordon Ramsay; while working for them, he’s completed the BarSmarts program, as well as the International Sommeliers Guild’s Levels 1 & 2 and Court of Master Sommeliers Level 1.
